Howard’s Folly and Food for Thought has teamed up in the Algarve in an endeavour to assist families and individuals adversely affected by the current economic crisis.
"Food for Thought" was launched in April this year, to assist families who cannot feed themselves. The project originally aimed to provide 1000 essential 14-day food packs across the Algarve. So far, the project distributed food sufficient for over 8000 meals to 130 family members, including children.
We want to continue this work and help families who are otherwise unable to afford to feed themselves.
We are deeply grateful for Howard’s Folly’s support, as well as the support already given to the project by their clients.
Howard’s Folly is a multi-award winning Portuguese winery based in the Alentejo, that has been committed to support charitable endeavours and in particular the fantastic work of the Sovereign Art Foundation. However, in light of the current situation, Howard’s Folly decided to change their charitable partner from the Sovereign Art Foundation to Food for Thought.
So for the coming weeks…
Howard’s Folly will donate 20% of every sale to Food for Thought program, and they are inviting you to participate by raising a glass in support of this worthy project. You can download the price list and order information in the downloadable section below.
Currently the Food for Thought program is being run from “The Treasure Chest” a shop that promotes ethical shopping for charitable purposes that is run from Lote 14, shop Nº9R in the Industrial Zone of Marateca, Chinicato, just outside Lagos.
In July this year, the Food for Thought program will move to Warehouse Nº18, situated just around the corner from the shop. The program will continue to be run for as long as needed, and funds are available to support it.
Howard Folly’s and Food for Thought invite you to raise a glass in support of the many families that desperately need your help.
